A sewer construction project that started today is closing one traffic lane on NE 47th Avenue during daytime construction hours. Work hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
During work hours, flaggers are directing traffic through the construction area on NE 47th just south of Buffalo Slough. Both lanes are open to traffic after work hours.
Construction will last for about two weeks.
Work crews are installing connections to a new sewage pump station on the east side of NE 47th Avenue. The project will connect about 100 homes and businesses that have been using septic systems to the public sewer system.
